Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, (tested with cropped-frame APS-C body)

Camera Labs
1 March 2008
  • Summary: There’s no denying the Canon EF 24-105mm is a high quality lens. It has decent optics, the excellent mechanical and build quality you’d expect from Canon’s L series, while the USM auto-focusing and Image Stabilisation are both very effective in use.
  • Pros: Canon 'L' build and mechanical quality., Effective IS and quick USM focusing., Polariser-friendly internal focusing., Compatible with full-frame bodies.
  • Cons: Lacking wide-angle on cropped bodies., Relatively expensive., Fringing visible even on cropped-frame., Less compelling if you're not going full-frame.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

Camera Labs
1 June 2006
  • Summary: The lens did however have a rocky start, with early models suffering from an internal flare problem , forcing returns and delaying wider distribution. These issues seem to have been solved now though, and certainly the versions we've tested exhibited no problems in this regard.
  • Pros: Useful wide to short telephoto range, Effective anti-shake IS capability, Fast and quiet USM focusing motor, Polariser-friendly internal focusing
  • Cons: Relatively expensive (at list price), Corners slightly soft at telephoto end, 24-70 f/2.8L has better build and focusing, 17-40mm f/4L an affordable alternative

photozone.de
14 September 2008
  • Conclusion: Regarding its equivalent zoom range (39-168mm) on an APS-C DSLR the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS may not be the most sexy lens here but its performance figures are very impressive nonetheless.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS - Retest @ 15mp (APS-C)

photozone.de
8 September 2008
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS produced pretty good quality figures in our tests. The resolution is generally very high throughout the tested range with the exception of 70mm and 105mm @ f/4 where the border quality tanked somewhat - this may originate in a slight centering issue of our test...

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS (full format) - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
24 August 2008
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 USM L IS is surely one of the better standard zoom lenses for full format EOS DSLRs but it's not perfect within this scope nonetheless. The resolution figures are generally very decent except for a pronounced border softness at 70mm @ f/4.

  • Summary: The Canon 24-104 mm/4.0 L IS is the standard zoom lens for the Canon full frame cameras. The quality, in terms of resolution and color aberrations, is just very average and the bokeh is not very nice. However, the vignetting is remarkably low.

28 May 2008
  • Summary: The Canon 24-104 mm 4.0 L IS is the standard zoom lens for the Canon full frame cameras. The resolution is high for a lens on a Canon camera with APS-C sensor, especially at the lower focal lengths. As expected, vignetting is lower on a camera with an APS-C sensor.
  • Pros: Excellent optical performance: high resolution, low vignetting, Quick AF, Sealing against dust and water
  • Cons: Less useful zoom range with a camera with APS-C sensor, Sharpness at the edges at full aperture lower than sharpness in center, Strong distortion and high chromatic aberration at 24mm (in RAW), Bokeh, Expensive

CNET
24 May 2004
  • Summary: Die Kamera ist eine schöne Sache, aber spärliche Softwareausstattung und mangelnde Multimedia-Unterstützung lassen den TJ27 hinter die Konkurrenz zurückfallen.
  • Pros: integrierte 310.000-Pixel-Kamera, schneller Prozessor, lange Akkulebensdauer, schlanke Form
  • Cons: dürftiges Softwarepaket, blasser Bildschirm, kein MP3-Player, Akku nicht austauschbar
